Canadian 4-H Council

"Learn to do by doing." - 4-H Council Motto

For close to 60 years, Sears Canada has been a proud member and supporter of the Canadian 4-H Council. Sears Canada is among the very few Canadian companies to have earned the prestigious 'Friend of 4-H Award' in recognition of the company's longtime support of 4-H at the national level. During the course of its involvement, Sears has supported youth travel, allowing hundreds of 4-H members to attend National 4-H conferences. The company has also supported the creation and distribution of marketing materials to help increase awareness of the 4-H program.

The Sears 4-H Club Grants Program is playing a major role as 4-H grows its membership and volunteer base across Canada. Since 2012, the grant has provided over $100,000 directly to 4-H Clubs to assist with Club startup and to increase the number of after-school programming opportunities for youth living in rural Canada.

The valuable opportunities and life experience gained by 4-H youth members from coast to coast would not be possible without the dedicated support of partners like Sears Canada who share our commitment to allowing youth to Learn to do by doing”, said Shannon Benner, 4-H Canada’s CEO.


Join 4-H to experience a life-changing opportunity. Learn valuable new skills and develop life-long friendships. 4-H has been helping young people reach their dreams since 1913.
